The bad advice thread

Anyone ever receive bad advice? Like ridiculous advice? Here's one I got when I was about 13.

If you're gonna race, make sure you stop smoking about a week before the event. You'll be fine.

If you think that's a hornet's nest, stick your arm inside it and feel aaround.

No, I never actually got that as advice, but it's what popped into my head when I read the name of this thread.

A good deal of the medical advice around here is pretty bad.
